Reducing Single-Use Plastics On The Menu At Electric Picnic Food Festival


Share this article


Reducing single-use plastics will be the topic of choice at this year's Theatre of Food.

The "festival within the festival" returns to Electric Picnic later this year, looking at how the food and drink industry can move forward against single-use plastics.

Foodies will be shown how to make an eco-brick with festival waste plastic, while some hats with a difference will be on display.

They have been designed by a UK fibre artist, and made from washed up beach plastic.

Kittie Kipper specialises in re-purposing ghost nets and marine debris.

Sustainable Cooking

As well as cutting down on plastics, festival foodies will also learn how to cook sustainably.

Caitlin Ruth will cook up a storm from a food truck, and serve it to people in the audience.

The Garden Stage will also feature a wood fired BBQ, with lessons and experiments by leading chefs.

This year the Main Stage will feature athletics champion and celebrity MasterChef winner David Gillick.

There will also be vegan cookery demos from writer and natural beauty stylist Holly White.

The Theatre of Food Fringe Theatre will feature workshops, including cake icing, pizza making and popcorn popping.

Sunday Drunch

Sunday Drunch is certain to be a sell-out.

All for charity; a feasting, drinking, dancing celebration of the Irish breakfast set alongside great music.

This year, all proceeds for the Drunch go to FEAST - the non-profit organisation set up to improve Food Education and Climate Action in Irish schools.

Theatre of Food is curated by Sally and John McKenna, of McKennas Guides, working with the Food Collective.
